Ok guys, I am writing this one more time. I have replace list of parts in last six months. Here is my list.

PCV Valve
PCV Hose
Air Filter
Fuel Filter
O2 sensor unpstream
Spark Plugs
Spark Plug wires
DPFE Sensor
Cleaned MAF
Cleaned IAC Valve
Cleaned Throttle Body

I drive 00 SE (SPI). I replaced fuel pump under warranty @70k miles. Now, I have 127k miles. I am just wondering if there is any way to test fuel pressure. I don't want to spend another 80$ for diagnosis.

I am sure someone on this forum can help me out.

Well, you could get a fuel pressure gauge and do it yourself, right? I don't know other way to do it.

Not sure man. I love my car. I am struggling to fix this issue from past six months. I live in Michigan, and driving in Winter w/o power is not fun at all.

I replaced DPFE sensor couple of weeks back, and the car responded fine for a week then again started acting up. I have no clue where I should go from here.

dont you know anyone with an Xcal???

All it takes is an Xacl (1,2 or 3) and a laptop and you can datalog just about anything on the car.

Hell if you know someone with a Predator you can do it right on the predator without a laptop.

Ummm...it's an SPI. What are you expecting from it??
Did it have more power EARLIER in it's life, or...?
Yes, I bought it used @40k miles. Added 80k miles w/o any power loss. Lately, it's running w/o power. I am not into recing. I know my car is sick, not sure how to get it fixed. It's not fun driving this puppy in stop and go traffic. The car runs fine cruising @65 mph and beyond.

I am going to have it checked. It looks fine from outside. I'll have to pay 70$ to have someone open that damn thing.
